Ingredients with strong flavors like ginger, lime, soy sauce and garlic marry together to create a perfect sauce for swordfish.
2 teaspoons grated lime rind
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons bottled fresh ground ginger
2 tablespoons minced green onion
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
4 (6-ounce) swordfish steaks (about 3/4 inch thick)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
How to Make It
Combine first 7 ingredients in a small saucepan. Dip each steak into the lime mixture to coat.
Place fish on a broiling pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
While fish cooks, place lime juice mixture over medium heat; cook until reduced by half (about 8 minutes). Serve sauce with fish.

Made this for company and got thumbs up from everyone. Used thicker steaks, brined them for 30 minutes and then cooked the fish on the grill. The sauce is absolutely terrific! Will have this again & again.
Very heavy on the lime, but the biggest problem is cooking time. I broiled on high for 10 minutes, but the underside was still raw. This seems to be a recurring problem with cooking light's recipes, my oven is brand new, so it's not that. I would go with 7 minutes on either side, as it was my sauce was black, form trying to keep it warm while i refired the fish.
Outstanding combination of flavors. A definite repeat as it is an easy and quick recipe. I would add a little more honey and soy and cut back on the lime juice a bit next time. It was very tangy but I love stronger flavors with swordfish. I also garnished with sliced green onions for added color. Served it with steamed green beans for a wonderful, healthful dish.
